Richard Pearson Thomas
Songs from New York
November 12, 2011

Richard Pearson Thomas has the heart and soul of the quintessential New York musician. Audra McDonald, Sanford Sylvan, Lauren Flanagan and Kurt Ollmann have all sung his praises, and his music. His musicals are performed off Broadway, and his songs have been sung at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, Merkin Concert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Joe’s Pub, and before the U.S. Congress. Come to the Court to hear our own eclectic selection of Richard’s music performed with his brilliant Trillium Ensemble collaborators, California based soprano, Patricia Prunty and New York based baritone, Bruce Rameker. The group’s performance tastes and varied styles range from the most popular theatricality to purely classical, and from the humorous to the profound. Discover a whole new world of exciting music in this east coast meets west coast cabaret of original songs composed by Thomas.

Richard Pearson Thomas is a composer and pianist, who has had works performed by the Boston Pops, Covent Garden Festival, Houston Grand Opera, Manhattan Chamber Orchestra, Chautauqua Opera, Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, Banff Centre, Skylight Opera Theatre, Encompass Opera Theatre, Portland Opera, and the Riverside Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.
